Vegas News | KAOS Out At Palms, Eldorado Almost In With Caesars, Getting Out Of Vegas Fees, +More – TravelZork
Quarterly casino earnings calls and reports often have information that we can use to look at the current and future state of the companies. The calls, specifically, don’t have major breaking news. This week Red Rock Resorts (AKA Station Casinos) dropped a news bomb that was news but not all that surprising.
Quarterly earnings are the best and worst at the same time. They often have interesting information. The earnings calls are another level. They often have additional commentary that isn’t in the reports and press release. Let’s explore more in Vegas News. Earnings reports and calls can also be incredibly boring for someone not financially invested.
Observations, Thoughts, and Trends (New Slot Machines and New Gaming Technology) From G2E – TravelZork
I’ve been going to the Global Gaming Expo (G2E) since I moved to Las Vegas. I’m not like the vast majority of attendees who work in the casino industry. I attend the annual gathering of the casino biz in part as media and also as a casino customer and gambler.

Today is a very special Vegas News day. I pulled my winter coat out of the closet for deep cleaning. The high temperatures this week will be 10-20 degrees cooler than last week. Brrr? Before leaving the east coast I donated all of my real winter coats.
Two breweries recently opened locations in downtown Las Vegas and I was stoked to check them out. My original downtown Las Vegas Breweries plan was to stop by both Able Baker Brewing and the new CraftHaus taproom. A funny thing happened on the way to a mini beer tour.
What a week! The Global Gaming Expo (G2E) was a blur. That blur sparked many memories both inside and outside of the expo itself. I’ll share thoughts on G2E another day. Let’s direct attention to the Vegas News focusing on casinos sold!
The Las Vegas PR machines might be slow right now but this week was a blur and I expect more of the same next week. A friend was in town for a conference and that gave me an excuse to enjoy Las Vegas like a tourist for a few days.
I finally visited the completely renovated Park MGM Las Vegas. I saw construction at the former Monte Carlo monthly over the past two-plus years. This was my first visit to the property with construction complete (for now). For context, my visit happened the day after Mama Rabbit (home of the 5% surcharge on drinks) opened.
We made it through another Vegas summer! High temperatures appear to be in the double digits for the rest of the year. Low temperatures will be in the mid 50’s by the end of the week with highs less than 80.
It’s race day in Las Vegas! Beastmode – Marshawn Lynch – will be driving the pace car at the South Point 400 today. This is the second NASCAR race in Las Vegas this year and the first race of the NASCAR playoffs. Enjoy!
